About these proceedings

Introduction

From March 16 - 18, 1988, an international workshop on inter­ sections without traffic signals will take place at the Ruhr­ University, Bochum. This book, which was compiled prior to the event, comprises the written versions of the contributions pre­ sented at the workshop. This preface is an attempt to give a short survey of the deve­ lopment of this particular field of traffic engineering. It has to be said in advance, however, that it is written from a point of view decisively influenced by the relevant German litera­ ture. Most of the intersections in our road networks are unsignaliz­ ed. At first glance, however, traffic engineers seem to be more interested in high-performance grade-separated or signalized intersections. But a closer study of the relevant literature does not confirm this apparent lack of importance. On the contrary: The subject of unsignalized intersections is still intensively dealt with at many research institutes. The German observer will notice the following fact while study­ ing the relevant sources: A remarkably high number of the au­ thors who have contributed to the investigation of unsignalized intersections in German-speaking countries have later become uni versi ty teachers. There is every reason to believe that traffic engineers primarily interested in theoretical problems have mainly been working in this field.
